Roles III 96
Meaning/Meaning Theory/m.Th./Understanding/Dummett: to understand the meaning of an expression is to understand its role in the language - not just translation.
III 97
A meaning theory must be built as a theory of understanding.

If the theory only provides an explanation of other contexts, in which we use the word "meaning", for example, "X has the same meaning as Y" or "X has a meaning", then it constitutes no theory of understanding.
